It was not supposed to be that way on his return to Carrow Road, where he won back-to-back promotions at the start of the decade, with Ipswich but the kind of assignment he outwardly relishes turned into a nightmare.Lambert was shown a red card by the referee, Peter Bankes, in first-half added time afte r a confrontation between the benches that required police intervention to assuage.
